    1877 Gold Dollar, MS65
    Lightly Abraded and Appealing

    1877 G$1 MS65 PCGS. CAC. The meager mintage of 1877 gold dollars was a scant 3,900 pieces, a tiny fraction of the 1874 production of nearly 200,000 coins. This Gem 1877 with the CAC sticker of one of seven submissions in this grade at PCGS, yet 24 are finer (11/13). This is a beautiful example of the issue, primarily yellow-gold to orange-gold with some dabs of lilac above the headdress, with a nicely contrasting antique-gold profile of Liberty. A single small mark along the jawline is the only mentionable mark, although the die crumbling at the C of AMERICA is as made.(Registry values: N2998)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 25DF, PCGS# 7578)
